Monkey See Monkey Do - Tiger Tiger Woods Ya'll!

Hey Peeps!
Happy Monday!
Today I've brought back Monkey See Monkey Do time, it's been off the blog a week or two while other things were going on or I was procrastinating it. But I found some time over the weekend to get a few mani's ahead and THIS is one I'm super proud of. Except for the couple of smudges I got from top coating, this is pretty good stuff...

This was fairly easy to achieve. I painted white areas on my nail, then went back and painted any unpainted parts with orange, then i sponged on both colors in my normal gradient method to blend the two colors together. Then I had to go in a bit haphazardly and just sponge around with two colors until it was blended more! Then I top coated and used my black striping polish to add the tiger stripes!

Used Julep Kate, Sinful Colors Citrine and Black Striping Polish (no idea where I got it, sorry)

^And this was my inspiration^
Unfortunately this person didn't watermark their photo and my pin on Pinterest of this doesn't have an origin link! But I know I just pinned it in the last week or two - if anyone knows who it belongs to, please let me know!
